The Bible asserts that God fashioned the heavens and the earth. Therefore, where did God exist prior?

According to the Bible, God created the heavens and the earth. However, the Bible does not provide a clear answer to where God existed prior to creation. Some theologians believe that God existed outside of time and space, while others argue that he existed within his own creation.

Ultimately, the question of where God existed prior to creation may be beyond our understanding as finite beings. The Bible teaches us to trust in God's sovereignty and to have faith in his plan, even if we do not fully comprehend it. As Psalm 90:2 states, "Before the mountains were born or you brought forth the whole world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God."
